Heart for the Homeless

WINNSBORO – The merchants of downtown Winnsboro sold and displayed pink paper hearts for $1 during February to raise money for the homeless in the community. During the weekly merchant meeting on Friday, the money raised ($150) was presented  to Bleva Bush Belton for the Closet to Closet ministry she runs in the Gordon Odyssey building for Fairfield County homeless students and their families.
